MORRIS EIGHT BARN FIND PROJECT
This is an early 1937 Series 1 Morris Eight that has been in the same family for over 50 years. It is complete and has been restored once many years ago. It was last registered in 1989 and is now on hold. It has been kept in dry storage. The owner is now unable to care for it so it needs to go to someone who can restore it to running order and enjoy it “seeing New Zealand the classic way”.
The car is in Oamaru. The owner’s family are seeking offers.

MORRIS MINOR TRAVELLER PROJECT
“I live in Solomon Islands but own a 1960s? Morris Minor Traveller kept in a garage in Blockhouse Bay, Auckland. It was bought in Fiji where all the wood was replaced with local wood using genuine measurements. I ran it there daily for five years. It was brought to NZ in 1993 and ran from the harbour to the garage. It was immediately put up on blocks and has not moved since!! I am looking to sell as is. Viewing can be arranged.
Offers near NZ$4,000 will be considered.

MORRIS EIGHT PROJECT
“Boris” is an early 1937 Series 1 Morris Eight Two Door Saloon that was purchased by the current owner in 1988. He was imported into New Zealand in 1996. The serial number is S1E/121660 and the UK Reg No. was AGB408. The original data plate is attached and the chassis number matches the data plate. NZ inspection papers are included in a comprehensive file of documentation. Boris has been restored at least once previously and motored in UK and NZ. He is currently undergoing a second restoration which is yet to be completed. All parts are available to complete the work.
His original engine has been removed and replaced with a special build engine incorporating a side valve Morris Minor short block fitted with Morris Eight parts to fit the car. The engine was running well when removed from the car. It is fitted with the standard three speed gearbox. The original engine is not available. Boris originally had the sun roof option but this appears to have been removed but the drains are still fitted. He still has his “home market” 17 inch wire wheels.
Boris is accompanied by a friend. He comes with an early 1936 Series 1 Morris Eight Two Door Saloon S1E/98750. This car also comes with the original data plate, matching chassis, and parts in boxes. Boris’ friend was purchased as a parts car and includes some Series 2 parts. The plan was to use the body from this car to replace Boris’ body which has more rust. This car could also be the basis for a second restoration.
These cars are to be sold as a package. Located in Auckland Asking price is $3500.
